Art Noveau

Art-Noveau was a very French style of eclecticism that was inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. Often taking the form of neo-baroque features, with Michelangelo styled mannerisms, Art-Noveau was a separate style that also included a Noveau font for sign-writing.

The style is not very common in Australia, and often appeared in cameo in various eclectic buildings.

Once one of Melbournes most popular Edwardian styles, but one of the first candidates for demolition.

Melbournes best remaining examples of the styler are the Patton Building (Elizabeth Street) and Melba Hall (Melbourne University).
